Step 1: Gather Your Supplies
What I used:
12 Gauge Aluminium wire - it's pretty soft and easy to work with.
26 gauge wire in a colour of your choice
Something to cut your wire and something to bend your wire. This wire is soft enough that you could bend it with your hands alone but you will need some cutters.
Hammering surface and hammer. If your hammer is all dinged up you will leave marks on your wire. If you have nothing else just do it evenly and call it textured :)
*Not pictured but a file or piece if sandpaper will help get the bottom edges smooth so you don't scrape your skin.
Step 2: Cutting Your Wire Lengths.
Step 3: Bend and Hammer the Aluminium Wire.
Step 4: Wrapping Your Contrasting Wire.
Step 5: Finish the Wire Wrapping.
Put the aluminium wire in between the two pieces of 26 gauge that are sticking down from your ear wire. Get a firm grip on all pieces from the side of the ear wire and bend the smaller length of the 26 gauge around the aluminium wire and the longer piece of the 26 gauge. Wrap until used up and tuck the end snugly next to the aluminium wire. Now take the longer length of 26 gauge and wrap it around the tucked end of the first piece and all the way up to where you looped the ear wire then continue wrapping evenly until you run out of wire.
